Performance Information 2016

Analysing the information we gather to benefit

A significant amount of performance information is gathered about pupils at Newsham.

The most important information is that which is gathered by the teacher everyday. This is gathered in many different ways, then teachers use this information to plan the next steps of learning for the children they are working with.

Information is also gathered across the school and then carefully analysed. Leaders are using this data to identify areas of best practice, training and resource needs and pupils who require different support. Ultimately this ensures Newsham pupils are achieving the very best that they can.

National Tests are also used to analyse performance. These tests include the Year 1 Phonics Screening Check, Year 2 SATs and Year 6 SATs. We are keen to share information about the school’s performance. Some of the links in this section will give you insight into the current picture.

NEWSHAM6Summary documents of the schools performance in statutory tests are displayed in school and are also available here. If parents or carers would like to discuss any issues relating to this, Mr Jones would be very keen to meet with you.

As the data for KS1 and KS2 changed significantly with new style assessments in 2016, no direct comparison can be made to previous years. Therefore, there is a document relating to 2016 and an additional document which provides information about previous years.
